I'm trying to remain hopeful but it's hard knowing the Houses's stance on medical cannabis and what their opinion is on what percentage to cap the THC. For some reason, many Representatives in the House have been quoted as saying that they won't allow more than 3% THC and claim that there are proven trials showing that this is the key amount of THC used before people get "high". Sadly, this is untrue as many people with cancer and other debilitating diseases NEED more THC.
In fact, the children with Epilepsy (like my son) that they use as an example of "only" needing low THC oils actually NEED more THC in many instances. I for one would LOVE to have access to products out of Colorado called Cannatol. Cannatol makes several products including a nasal rescue spray for Grand Mal seizures and that product is 5% THC. So people in Iowa who have children with Grand Mals wouldn't even be able to use that as a rescue med because it has 2% more THC in it than some House members feel we should have access to. The option for rescues instead are heavy duty benzos that have to be administered rectally and leave children in a drug induced phase for days vs being able to come out of a Grand Mal quickly and with no side effects like the kiddos shown in the viral Cannatol videos.
Here is a video of Cannatol being used:
